    LSE PPE? I don't think they would ask for UMS (I think it's only for straight economics and any course with maths in the name) but even then you're in a good position to apply.
    No LSE straight econ. I chose PPE rather than E&M because management seems so boring to me and I can specialise in econ as much as an E&Mist can (same 1st year econ courses and same max amount of finals papers in econ)

    I just did bio maths fm and econ for my AS and i got AAAB (B in bio) do you think this puts me in a worse position to apply to the top schools because i have a B in bio? Or will they not really mind as much because its a kind of unrelated subject..?
    I got high UMS in econ (197/200) and maths (284/300) then lower A in FM (254/300)
    Do you think this is good enough to apply to oxbridge? Or would the B in bio really bring me down?
    Thanks
    For Cambridge I think your scores are too low (biology and fm drags it down) to get an interview and for LSE they would require you to get an A in biology if they did give you an offer (you're not allowed to drop biology, only fm for LSE). I think you'd stand a higher chance at Oxford if you interview well, an okay chance at LSE and a very low chance at Cambridge.

    Oh, in that case then yes your UMS would have to be sent through a questionnaire, but given you're a post a2 applicant I'm not so sure. If you write a very strong PS then you'll get an offer.

    Would LSE ask for UMS for the maths and economic course (which is run in the maths department) ?

    I'm pretty sure, but you're best to ask in the LSE sub forum as I don't have first-hand experience with this.

    I just hope and pray they give me a chance. I might try visiting the unis and asking current students if they know any people who got a B in AS and still got in
    are you applying for straight econ at them?
    E&m or PPE for oxford?

    Hey guys, I'm curious as to what all of you got in your AS results? I got relatively low AS grades (ABBB) this year and although I'll be resitting some of the modules, I really don't think I'll be getting an offer from UCL/Warwick/Oxford/Bristol/Bath this year. I'm hoping my GCSEs (10A*s and 2As) and high A2 predicted grades (A*A*A) are enough to get me offers but I'm not optimistic. Anyways, how did you all do at AS?

    I got 4 As. I would not recommend applying for oxbridge/LSE/Warwick/UCL with those AS grade simply because they will have more than enough applicants with better grades to choose from. Bristol and Bath are still viable I would think as long as the B wasn't in maths.

    Would it be stupid if I applied to both Economics and Economics with year abroad at UCL?

    I got 4As and a B in chinese (although I'm resitting the speaking in chinese I think)
    Are those the 5 you're thinking of applying to or have you got any other choices?

    Hmm, email the department and see what they say. I think I remember asking them last year and they said that it wasn't possible to get 2 offers from the same department, so you'll either get 1 or 0 offers. I think it makes sense not to apply to both, since applying twice will not double your chances, it has no effect.

    Those are pretty much my final choices since I want to pursue a career in investment banking, so its crucial that I get into a top uni. UCL and Warwick are by far my preferred choices. I'm doing Welsh Bac too and UCL actually include it their offer so I'm hoping that works in my favour.

    I considered that but decided that if I don't get offers from UCL/Oxford/Warwick/(maybe Bristol) due to my AS grades then I'd rather take a gap year (providing I get at least A*A*A at A2) and then try again a year later. But still, I don't want to be a year behind:/

    I don't think it makes much difference once you get to uni whether you're a year older or not
    What a-levels are you doing btw?

    I guess you have a point. I'm doing biology (which I had the A in), chemistry, physics and French. As you can see I didn't do AS maths because I only decided that I wanted to do economics midway through year 12, as I was previously interested in medicine. I'm doing the whole A Level maths course in Year 13 (while dropping chemistry and physics) and my school has said they'll predict me A* in maths. I've also emailed the unis I'm applying to and they're all fine with my course of action It's complicated, I know lol
